Modding Noob.

Good afternoon everyone on this lovely Sunday. I am beyond happy that I was able to stay in my pajamas all day! I worked the last six Sundays and finally got one off! If only it was a whole weekend then I would have had a happy dance but I kind of still have a weekend off, Sunday and Monday and at least tomorrow I get to spend all day with my husband. Hope all is well with everyone. Halloween is fast approaching and I’m not quite ready for it to be here yet, but a week from today I will have been married to my husband for seven years! Holy Cow sometimes it seems like I just met him yesterday. But that’s pretty much whats happening in my neck of the woods, with that being said lets jump to what I really would love to talk about….and I have realized since I started this blog I have talked about many other things and have really slacked on the video game side of things. Which was the supposed to be my main focus. Unfortunately life gets in the way and it takes me some time to complete games. But today marks change!

When we lived with our friends last year I downloaded Dragon Age Origins for free off of Origins but I thought I had lost the game because we had changed the hard drive to a bigger one and honestly I even forgot I had downloaded the game until finally getting our PC back up and running this early summer. The problem that I am having is that I have too many damn EA/Origin accounts I cannot keep them all straight and I find myself still having trouble getting it all sorted out. My Origins game on the Xbox 360 is a different account as is my inquisition and DA2 I really need to get a hold of EA and see if there’s someway to delete all other accounts from my profile and begin anew with the one I have right now on my computer. It has just been one big mess and its been giving me a headache.

I have always wanted to play games on a pc and I never knew how exciting mods could make a game. Thankfully on Twitter I asked for help finding a starting point on modding Dragon Age Origins and now its taking over my life. Get with it Microsoft 😀

I have pretty much spent most of my time thinking of what else to mod in my first play through. So far I added more hair, eye colors, changed the undergarments *the in-game ones look dirty eww,* Also changed the look of Alistair, he is still good-looking only he has darker hair *Sorry Not sorry I prefer my men to have facial hair and darker hair.* Added a new Armor although I haven’t figured out where the stupid thing has gone. Also I found one where I could kiss and say goodbye to Ser Gilmore in Human Noble origin story, oh and I gave him a makeover, more rough around the edges! Holy cow I have gone mod crazy! I think I have an illness. If you would like to know how I got all these things just simply go to  www.dragonagenexus.com. To do all these mods I just went to the website downloaded the Nexus Mod Manager and went on a mod spree! Thank the maker they are free!!!

Here is the character I have created for my first time with mods, you may have seen her on my Instagram/twitter/Tumblr already if you follow me, all links added! I also added a bit of back story to her as well, please give me your thoughts and feedback. I have had a lot of great comments over in the THE Dragon Age Universe Facebook page as well as the Gamer Goddesses page.

Meet my Warden Laykn Cousland. She was the best daughter she could be even though she wanted to know what the world outside the castle walls was like. Knowing how her parents wanted to protect her she held her own feelings hidden but at the same time she wished for a greater role in life. She is forced to be conscripted because she couldn’t imagine life without her parents in it. She is going to fall for Alistair and become his queen.

Oh the Feels!

The new Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer was freaking sweet! I was going to try to make a conscious decision to not watch any more trailers since the Teaser and official trailer came out, yet when my husband told me to come watch it I couldn’t look away. I am getting super-duper hyped for this movie! Give me more Leia, Han, Chewie and where the hell is Skywalker the butt head?? They sure are keeping him a secret huh? I have a little theory that maybe Luke is head of the new Death Star wouldn’t that be a knee slapper? Highly unlikely but you never know.  I know Kylo Ren is going to be an awesome villain I can already feel it in my nerdy little heart. I cannot wait to fall in love with the new characters as well! I am putting full trust and faith into JJ Abrams on this one. Well perhaps I should keep this short and sweet so I don’t have an aneurism or something catastrophic.

December 18th Get over here!!!

I will just leave this here feel free to watch over and over again.

Love all things star Wars and remember there can never be too much Star Wars and if someone says there is then they are not a fan. Just kidding. Love you nerds/geeks. Back to trying to figure out how to add mods to Dragon Age Origins, I had no idea it was complicated. THanks YouTube

 

Hold on to your bootstraps 

New official Star Wars movie poster! New trailer is coming soon (in which I’ll be skipping over, trailers spoil too much in my opinion) I believe that it’s during Monday night football. >Don’t quote me on that last part <

I even have my shirt I am going to wear to see Star Wars The Force Awakens! Picked it up yesterday.  

There’s a question that’s been floating around asking if there is such a thing as too much Star Wars? And to this my friends I say clear as day NEVER! I am probably way more excited today then when Episode One came out during my childhood. Can’t wait to see Kylo Ren in action! U

Disturbed #Immortalized

Happy third day of October everyone! Fall is in the air which means  sweater weather, hot chocolate, Halloween costumes/candy, Pumpkin patches and leaves everywhere! This is all fine and dandy unless you live somewhere that doesn’t experience the true beauty of fall weather then I feel true sadness in my heart for you. Fall is my favorite season with Spring close behind. I am not looking to what comes after fall but some of you lucky ducks don’t have to experience snow. I didn’t start putting together my Pirates Halloween costume on time this year so I don’t know what to do, I will probably just be myself and to be honest most days that’s pretty scary. Fear me tiny humans. Oh wait you weren’t suppose to see that **ahem**

I know what you came here for so let’s go to that! I am quite proud of myself I haven’t missed a month yet probably the only posting schedule ill be able to keep this year. October’s choice is Disturbed, Immortalized, there hasn’t been a new cd from them since 2011. They have always been apart of my music playlist, even as a teenager I would play their “Down with the Sickness” on full blast whenever I had a bad day or if I was extremely angry I still enjoy that song even in my adult years. Disturbed has a special place in my heart! *I can safely say that they contributed to my lack of hearing these days* And for that I thank you!

There isn’t one song on Immortalized that I dislike, in fact I love them all but the song I have chosen for this month is my absolute favorite. I think its awesome that Disturbed did a cover song of Simon and Garfunkel called “The Sound of Silence” when upon first listening to this song I couldn’t even tell that it was them until almost the end. I give them a round of applause for that one. Bravo! Oh before I get to the song pick if your going to pick up this album I highly suggest picking up the deluxe album.

“Who Taught You How To Hate”

I hear the voices echoing around me
Angered eyes that don’t even know who I am
Looking to kill again (They will kill again)
As the unknown enemies surround me
Wicked laughter resonates inside my head
And I am filled with dread (And adrenaline)
What did I do? Why do I deserve this?
So we’re different,
why do I deserve to die now?
Give my a reason why?

Then it all goes a blur
Let instinct take flight
Find my hands on his throat
Yet hear myself say

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn’t in your blood
Not a part of what you’re made
So let this be understood
Somebody taught you how to hate
When you live this way, you become
Dead to everyone

A father’s pride, my son walking beside me
I look around and marvel how the children play
In perfect disarray (So innocent)
No judgement, pure exhilaration
Black to white, the colors aren’t on their minds
Nothing predefined (All different)
There’s always one who plants an evil seed and
Preaches fear to pull you to the other side
Into a world of lies

Everything is unsure when you’ve lost your sight
Can there still be a cure?
What made you this way?

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn’t in your blood
Not a part of what you’re made
So let this be understood
Somebody taught you how to hate
When you live this way, you become
Dead to everyone

(You’re not anyone)
Oh

Lost all innocence
Infected and arrogant
You burn all your life
(There’s no telling you)
No deliverance
Consumed by the pestilence
Of hate, you’re denied
Deep in your heart does it still remain?
Do you think you can bring it
Back to life again?
Is it still in your soul?
(No saving you)
Where’s the deviant
The unholy revenant
That has made you this way?
Made you fall for this hate

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn’t in your blood
Not a part of what you’re made
So let this be understood
Somebody taught you how to hate
When you live this way, you become
(You become)

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn’t in your blood
Not a part of what you’re made
So let this be understood
Somebody taught you how to hate
When you live this way, you become
(You become)
Dead to everyone
(You’re not anyone)
